Advent Decorations

The historical anniversary of Summerfield also coincided with the start of Advent. Congregational members spent Saturday, December 1st decorating the Sanctuary.

Many of the hand-sewn banners and hand-crafted ornaments date back to the early 1970s, made by the wife of Pastor William Parrish. Collage | Panorama

Summerfield is also the only church in Milwaukee with a Nativity scene permanently designed into its stained glass windows. Around the 1920s, there began a decades-long tradition in the East Town (Yankee Hill) area to visit the illuminated window at night and sing Christmas carols. Nativity Window
